If you've been paying attention to the news of the stranded Carnival cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico, then you know how horrible conditions have become. No power, no restroom facilities, and people fighting over dwindling food and water supplies.
What's happening onboard this ship is a microcosm of what would happen in our "civilized" society should we lose power for an extended period of time. No electricity, food, water, gasoline, or anything else that we take for granted on a daily basis would be available from the usual sources. Whatever you have at the moment the grid goes down is all you will have for a very long time.
Now add roving bands of thugs who will come, looking to take by force anything they may need, and you have a situation that none of us would want to be in, but is something for which we'd all better be prepared.
No announcement yet.
